Publisher's Summary

My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper.

Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms. But the trip is nearly cut short in the little beach town of Rosemary when she realizes she can’t even pump her own gas—until Woods Kerrington shows up, more than willing to help out a pretty girl in need.

Woods’s family wants him to settle down with a wealthy woman in pearls, but he can’t resist this carefree girl in cutoffs passing through town. A one-night stand should have been enough, but months later, Woods can’t get the irresistible Della out of his head.

When a twist of fate brings Della back to Woods, all signs point to trouble if they don’t keep their distance. Neither is truly free, and a relationship could destroy both of them. With their hearts on the line, Della thinks the safest bet is to walk away. But Woods isn’t about to let that happen...

    "Abbi Glines writes the most addicting books!!"

    Abbi writes books that are absolutely addicting. Once you’ve read an Abbi Glines book you’ll be hooked for life. This is not a light and easy romance. It deals with dark issues and struggles. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming. Tragic and hopeful. Weakness and Strength. Passion. Fear. Anxiety. Lust. Love. Woods and Della. Della is so broken. She’s a shattered girl trying to find herself in a world that she has no idea how to live in. After a torturous childhood Della is given the opportunity by her best friend to go out into the world and “find herself.” She needs to learn to be independent and to find some sort of freedom from a childhood that haunts her every moment. Della just wants to experience all the ups and downs that go with a normal life. Woods is working hard to take over the family business. He wants the vice president job but his father will only allow this if he agrees to an arranged marriage. He unhappily agrees until Della and Woods lay eyes on each other it’s LUST at first sight. The chemistry is addictive! This book was seriously hot. And sweet. And passionate. And full of love, and self discovery, and self acceptance. In other words, it was simply amazing. Once again, I am blown away at how much I love the worlds Abbi creates. The people she dreams up, and the emotions they bring me.

    "Not my favorite from Abbi Glines"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was an okay story. I was excited to hear Woods' story, but was disappointed with the story. I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the series, but wasn't blown away with this one, so much so, I won't be buying the next book in this series


    What was most disappointing about Abbi Glines’s story?

    I felt it was a weak story line. Woods is a strong character, but the story was okay, not my favorite


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to Elizabeth, she did an okay job...
    Have listened to many books with Sebastian and am yet to find one that he doesn't excel in. He has an amazing voice

    "Spin-off from Fallen Too Far - I loved it"

    I loved Woods from Fallen Too Far and I'm so glad he got his own book. It was fun to get an inside look into what makes him tick. This was such an enjoyable and at times a heartbreaking listen. I love the characters that Abbi Glines creates. I can get lost in her books for hours. Hopefully Audible will get all the books from the Fallen series soon.

    "Sebastian York as Woods? YES PLEASE!"

    Yet another winner in the sweet romance niche that Abbi Glines has perfected. I loved Woods when he was introduced in the 'Fallen' series, so I was eager to hear his story. I wasn't disappointed in the least. In all honesty, I was super excited that Sebastian York was the narrator---his voice added another layer of yum to Woods' appeal. Della was a sweet character and despite her really tragic childhood, she and Woods find a special love. Probably the main gripe I have is the female narrator, she should probably retire from voiceover work.

    Looking forward to hearing what happens next for Della and Woods!

    Would you listen to Twisted Perfection again? Why?

    Yes, Abbi Glines books are my guilty pleasure


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Della had self esteem issues but her backstory makes that ubderstandable and tolerable


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and I love both the narrators...Sebastian York's voice is like melted sex

    I really enjoy that both a female and a male narrate this book! This makes it amazing to have both perspectives.


    What about Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York ’s performance did you like?

    They were both very believable as characters.

    Couldn't stop listening from start to finish!

    "A SWEET LOVE STORY BET. WOODS & DELLA"

    I was so excited to read/listen to Woods' love story as he was quite the DREAM POPSICLE in the "Fallen Too Far" series, when he was interested in Blair. I really wanted him to have a great love story of his own and this is the very beginning of that love chapter for Woods and Della. Woods is what I refer to as a "Prince" among men. He's a gentleman, a leader, well-liked and respected by his peers which include the hot-men of Rosemary Beach. As he oversees and manages Kerrington Country Club there's a widening rift pushing him farther away from his father's iron clad will and determination to make life choices for Woods. The heroine, Della is somewhat of a lost soul who is finding herself. She has a troublesome past, but is very sweet and catches Woods' eye right away. Of course, Della is a looker, as she is beautiful, with long brown hair and blue eyes. She also has a body that Woods refers to as a "sex goddess"...lol

    So, as their attraction was instant and like no other, the two come together for a one night stand. Yet as Woods follows up on a favor, for his friends Tripp and Jace, to provide a nice, young lady with a job, little did he know that some of the best gifts in life come through unexpected moments. Della really is a gift to Woods. The chemistry between these two really sizzles and you get the dirty talk with great sex scenes that you come to expect in this series. In this book, Woods has an engagement to a "would-be-trophy-wife" to get out of (Angelina...what a witch!), he needs to find his own way in life out of his father's grasp, and he has a love affair to explore with Della with an HEA on the horizon. Della's situation is a lot more complicated as she has a traumatic upbringing to heal from. She also works to fit into Woods' life in a way that is genuine and real.

    This is a very sweet love story, and it was an even better treat to get back into Rosemary to see what the other friends were up to, such as Jace, Bethy, Jimmy, Grant, and we finally get to meet the much revered Tripp. It was also fabulous to see how Rush and Blair were doing. I loved how Blair and Bethy had formed this wonderful friendship that they extended to Della; and if anyone was in need of good friends, it was sweet Della.

    Narrators: OMG!!! Sebastian York was just perfection for Woods' voice. His voice is so swoon worthy!!! Elizabeth Louise was also very good and made Della come to life.

    The end is abrupt, and pretty life-changing for Woods, but you just come to expect that abruptness in the books in this series. Just know that when you download the first book, you might as well download the one that follows because they bleed into each other....now on to SIMPLE PERFECTION!!

    "Woods, I LOVE you!"

    I so enjoyed reading (hearing) this book, I didn't realize it happened before the last of Blaire & Rush's book so it was a bit out of order for me, but it was great!!! This shows us how Della and Woods meet and the beginning of their relationship, it ends right at a serious point and so of course you have to keep going. Great story. We see some events with Rush and Blaire which is great, love this one.
